A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME
I am a easy going person (but not a push-over).. I enjoy sharing my ideas and obviously swapping. Although I am a newbie I am not a flaker, if I say I am going to post something I will. As I am from the UK, overseas swappers please be patient. I am uploading all my swaps onto my flickr, I am going to take a picture of the swaps and of the package, feel free to have a nosey (but dont spoil your surprise).
I am really into primitive, folkart, homespun items for my own home, I am hoping to build on my style and decor as it is relatively new to me.
right my dislikes:
To be honest I am not that fussy about my swaps, although I would like some effort put into swaps (as I give 100%) I would like the same back in return. As long as you follow this rule we will all be happy.
As I am new I have seen people put wishlists so I am going to do the same (although these are extra special wishes I really dont expect any of them) right here goes:
I love handmade soaps etc from 'lush' anything from that shop makes me happy.
I use 'Benefit' make-up but it costs the earth.
I also like 'Bodyshop' make-up and bath accessories, hey a girl cant have too many smellys.
As already said I really like (homespun, folkart, primitive) items... especially raggy dolls, boxes, signs and plaques.
Like I said this is a WISH LIST... I really dont expect any of these items.
